New edition: There is a new edition of Villagers & Villains available. In this 2nd edition printing you have (4) brand new cards which add an extra dimension to game play: The Carnival, Viking Queen, Carni, and Gate House work in sinergy to either extend the game, add a lot more gold to your town, or like “hot potato” ruin your town score if you end up with the Carnival on the final round. The game has an upgraded DIE (the 1st edition die was admittedly evil, and was universally loathed). You will identify the new edition by the COVER text which is glossy and now outlined. (see new additions in the image below)
Unrivaled Finals 2018: The UNRIVALED tournament was scheduled, then canceled due to an abrupt folding of the company. This was a 3rd party company which had no affiliation to Studio 9 Games and is owned by Oomba. We are grateful for the efforts they made, and sad to see such a fun tournament ended.
Unrivaled Finals 2017: Congratulations to all the 4 finalist and all the participants in the Unrivaled Finals in Las Vegas. Enjoy this video of the final action Saturday night!
